Just Daffodils!

Some daffodils, just for fun. And because I love the colour in snow-light.



We’re braced for some cold weather here. Snow will fall, they say. The usual struggle to get to work, when all we want to do is stay inside with a hot drink and a good book.

But catkins remind us that spring is close.

A Favourite View

Always a favourite place to stop, look, and just breathe. Sheep, deer, constantly changing light…


Just Because

Saw these today on a trip out. It was cold and raw, but these tulips made me forget that for a moment. So… just because they’re tulips!


Cold Day in the Peaks

It was beautiful in the Peak District this afternoon. Beautiful but cold. No flowers, no birdsong. Yet.



Seen yesterday. And now I feel that spring is close.



First Snowdrops

It’s been a tough week. So when I ventured into the garden this morning to hang washing out, I was heartened to see that the first snowdrops had appeared.

A small yellow flower had just pipped them to the post though; I think it’s a double primula. It looks a bit bedraggled and sorry for itself, but the colour is startling and most welcome in all the gloom!


And here’s another snowdrop picture, taken this afternoon in Derbyshire. Just because I like them!
